I can verify the lobby and auditorium are gone. You drive through the former lobby to get to the parking lot where the auditorium was.

I guess this should be listed as demolished.

Looks like the upper story is there, but the auditorium and lobby were torn out for parking.

The Richmond Theatre was actually located in Richmond Heights, MO.

Closed as a movie house in December 1959. In October 1960 the Southtown Players, a dramatic group, moved in and presented their productions there until June 1970.

Opening date of Richmond was October 23, 1935.

Built by Oscar Lehr; then operated by Kieselhorst & Wilson (who also operated the Shady Oak); in 1937 leased to St. Louis Amusement.

Theatre operated for years as a neighborhood house. Became an art house in the 50s.
